The dreaded weigh in...

The obligatory post weigh in  photograph. I don't notice many changes in the pictures from week to week but I can feel the change in my body (well just my stomach). I see and feel some change in my trousers. So I tried to document that. The first one is me from the side. I can get a hands with between my stomach and my trousers. Not that you can tell that well but whatever!It really was dreaded this week. The pizza and the wine plus treat night I was sooooo bloody worried. Even when I did an intense work out, went swimming and ate well immediately after I figured it wouldn't be enough. Because I sat on my arse the rest of the week so I could finish my essay. Studying is not productive to exercise I feel.  Despite the pizza splurge I have a great week, My essay is done. I have twice as much energy as I ever had. I made the most scrumptious chilli con carne. I am sleeping such more better that I could cry with joy. And it seems the weather is slightly less cold. Plus tonight I get to see an advance screening of the Watchmen for free at the imax. All is right with the world....

I LOST THREE POUNDS THIS WEEK. I couldn't believe it. I stepped on and off the scales 5 times just to make sure. I still can't believe it. Really. Did not expect it, really thought I would maintain or gain. But I am not going to whinge about how I don't deserve it. I have been telling other people about unexpected losses. It is much better than 
a gain and staying the same. So you know what I am just going to bask in the glory that I am now a straight TWENTY STONE. bang on even. I like the sound of it. TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY POUNDS EVEN.

Everyones been posting their food successes in picture form so TA -DAH here is my chilli con carne. *beams proudly* It does like very orange, 'tis the camera effect I feel.

Feckin awesome! You really don't need to worry so much! Congratulations, mate :)

And damn! Watchmen at imax for FREE?! I'm so jealous! I won't be getting to watch it this weekend as it's R16, and the mate's bro's are too young.

Nice job on the chilli!
